An assessment of the use of drug and non-drug interventions in the treatment of Ichthyophthirius

Ich, short for Ichthyophthirius
multifiliis, is a nasty parasite that kills various freshwater fishes worldwide, resulting in severe losses to both food and ornamental fish.
Ichthyophthiriasis, usually referred to as "ich" or "fish whitespot", is a serious disease caused by the ciliate protozoan parasite Ichthyophthirius
multifiliis (Fouquet, 1876), which exists worldwide and may infect all freshwater fish (SUDOVA et al., 2010), with great financial impact on the culture of fish for human consumption and in aquariums due to high mortality rates typically associated with the disease.
nuchalis examined had 19.9 [+ or -] 1.6 cm and 41.4 [+ or -] 11.6 g, and all were parasitized by species of protozoans and/or metazoans, such as Ichthyophthirius
multifiliis Fouquet, 1876; Piscinoodinium pilullare Schaperclaus, 1954, Lom, 1981 (Protozoa); Cosmetocleithrum striatuli Abdallah, Azevedo and Luque, 2012 (Monogenoidea), Procamallanus (Spirocamallanus) inopinatus Travassos, Artigas and Pereira, 1928 (Nematoda) and metacercariae of Posthodiplostomum sp.
